GDP is no longer has been for a few years now.

all these shows circulate at your local torrent sites
and the shows that get cut eventually get circulated
you just got to wait around case in point this show
from the Mastering Plant in L.A. as for tracks getting cut
i'm not sure if maybe that's a band member decision,damage
reels or just rhino getting the overhead costs down.the fact
is the dead aren't pink floyd or the beatles who can sell
millions of copies.rhino has to keep their costs down,we are
a small fan base who have most shows anyway in fairly decent is what it is,maybe when the lease is up the band
will open up the vaults.

With respect tigerbolt, I strongly disagree. They made a choice. No one forced anyone to sign any contract. The grateful dead are a gold (or silver) mine.A lisence to print money. A five year old could run this company with the principal of treating others as we would want to be. Overhead costs ? Small batch printing ? Can't fulfill the contract because of a terrible business model? No no no. How about someone with juice getting down to the floor with the workers to see how things are working or not in this case, gameplan, then fix the damn thing. This is not rocket science.

micah6vs8, you said all that needs to be said on the subject. Thanks. Kindred spirit for sure. I obviously need to accept the fact that I kept my old Denon tape deck and Maxell XLIIs way too long and started downloading from IA after the gold rush. Considering I'm obsessed with a band that played its last *great* show more than 30 years ago (IMHO), I shouldn't be surprised being behind the technology curve.
